An FTP user could use this flaw to cause the vsftpd process to use an excessive amount of CPU time, when processing a request with a specially-crafted file name pattern. (CVE-2011-0762) All vsftpd users should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a backported patch to correct this issue. The vsftpd daemon must be restarted for this update to take effect.
